Oct Glymm Box

Yay is Glymm Box time :) For those that don't know what Glymm box a monthly subscription box like
"Luxe Box" You receive 4-5 deluxe sample size products from anything beauty, so this way you get to try out different brands & products. Is a really good way to explore in the beauty world in an affordable way, is around $10 CAD to receive a box every month. So enough of an intro here lets jump right into what I got this
month, Oh i forgot to mention. Each and everyone receive a different variation of the boxes, they select products or colors that's according to your liking when you do your survey. So that way you won't get totally out of the world products that you will never ever use.

So this month is my favorite month, I love most of items that came in the box. However this will also be the last month that I will get a Glymm Box & the reason is I am doing a little project on comparing the Glymm Box & Luxe Box. I want to see which one I prefer more before I committee to one of them. I will be filming this comparison video right after I get better, hopefully this project will help some of you decide which brand you like to go with.

If you got the Glymm box this month, this is the box that's worth the money. This month you are getting 4 products & 2 full size ones, yay for full size. Yes if I didn't mention earlier you do occasionally receive full size products in your boxes. I will link the video that I did down below for those that want a first impress of the box, in this blog post I will give a little review on what I thought of the products that I tried so far. Keep in my when I filmed the video, it was my first time trying the products after a while my thoughts on the products might have changed.

Lets start off with the full size products :)
Lise Watier-Lip Kiss Crayon Gloss in Melon Twist
This lip crayon gloss definitely have the pigmentation of a lipstick, so I don't see this as a gloss at all. It reminds me of the Jumbo Lip Pencil from NYX, if some are looking for a more affordable alternative. Since this baby right here retails for $18 CAD, which is a little pricey for a lip pencil that's just my opinion. Is a very pretty coral red, great color for fall & winter everyone loves to wear a little red when the Holiday is coming around the corner. I am glad that I got a coral red instead of a pure red, I always preferred an off red cause it just seems more fitting on me. This Crayon does claim to be an ultra shine & hydrating lip pencil, after I used it several more times I still stand my ground to what I said in the video. I don't feel the moisturizing factor in fact it dried up my lips even more, it defiantly helps to apply loads of lip balm before applying this crayon. Oh and remember if you want shine add some gloss, cause this won't give you much of a glowing effect. Overall I really like it and is something that I gravitate towards when I am picking out what to wear on my lips this month. The chances that I will purchase this will be 4 out of 5, a pretty high chance for a lip product since I am not really a lippy girl. You can purchase this online or if you live in Canada, London Drug & Shopper Drug Mart carries this brand.

Principessa-Bacio Lip Balm
This is another full size product, 2 full size lip products for this month. A yummy smelling lip balm this is, got a warm vanilla scent to it. Makes you want to lick your lips & eat it up cause it just smells that yummy, but we all know that's a bad idea. It moisturize your lips and makes it shiny too, which can double as your lip gloss you don't have to carry too much. It does make your lips silky and it feels very light, I say is a great lip balm to invest in. One of my favorite balm this month and I will purchase this balm once I am out of it, you can snatch this baby up online at (they do ship to the states) this retails for $11 CAD.

Principessa-Pretty Piede Foot Balm
Another product from Principessa, I never use foot balm but I know I should. My foot is dry but is not to the point of cracking, so I don't know how moisturizing it can be to help the cracks. What I like about this is it doesn't have a funky smell, when I think of foot creams I always imagine it to smell funny. I am sure some foot balm have a funny smell, it does contain vitamin E. Which for a fact I know that helps to really moisturize your skin, you can get a jar of just Vitamin E cream but it doesn't smell so nice. I used this foot balm on and off for a couple of times & all I can say is it does help, but other than that I don't know what to say. I will need to try it more to see the full effect, these things need time to work. Tip: if you do have really dry & crack feet, a way to speed up the healing is to apply the cream and wear a pair of socks to sleep. The heat of it will help with healing the cracks, it works for my mom since she has really dry skin around the back of her foot. Will I purchase this, to be honest I don't know since I never tried other foot balm before. I don't particularly favor this balm & I don't have anything else to base it off of. So I will have to hold on to that answer until I tried another foot cream. This product retails for $18CAD & the full size amount is 125ml.

That's is it for this box, there's actually one more product but I didn't try it yet so I can't give a review on it. Here's the Oct Glymm Box Video:
